When Should You Repair Or Replace Your AC?

Maintaining a comfortable indoor environment is essential for any home or office, and a reliable air conditioning system plays a vital role in achieving that. However, due to several factors, the air conditioning is not immune to wear and tear. Eventually, the question arises! When should your AC be repaired or replaced? While repair may look like a suitable option for newer AC units and minor issues, older systems with frequent breakdowns and expensive repairs often need a replacement. But it's difficult to find out what is the right decision. That's why, in this article, the experts from Ewing & Ewing Air Conditioning will explain the signs of AC repair & replacement to help you out!

Signs That You Need Air Conditioning Repair

When your AC starts showing signs of trouble, it's natural to wonder whether a repair is sufficient. Recognizing the signs for AC repair can help you address the issues promptly and prevent further damage. Here are some common indicators that your AC may need repair service:

  • Insufficient cooling or uneven temperature distribution in your space.
  • Weak or reduced airflow from the vents.
  • Unusual noises such as squealing, banging, or rattling come from the AC unit.
  • Bad odors indicate potential mold or mildew growth.
  • Frequent cycling or short cycling of the AC system.
  • Noticeable increase in energy bills without any significant change in usage.
  • Water leakage or pooling around the AC unit.

If you observe any of these signs, it is advisable to contact a professional HVAC technician. Ewing & Ewing Air Conditioning is your trusted source in this. We can analyze the problem with your AC accurately, provide necessary repairs, and ensure your AC system operates efficiently, keeping you cool and comfortable.

When Is The Time to Replace Your Air Conditioning?

AC replacement can help you avoid unexpected breakdowns and make a precise decision. Here are some key signs that it may be time to consider replacing your AC system:

  • AC unit is more than 10-15 years old so it is less efficient and more prone to breakdowns.
  • Frequent breakdowns and repairs even after addressing the issues.
  • Costly repairs that exceed the value of a new AC unit.
  • Outdated technology and features that limit functionality and comfort.
  • Difficulty in finding replacement parts because the AC unit is outdated.
  • Any significant change in your cooling needs or home layout that require a more powerful or different AC unit.
  • Upgrading to an AC unit that meets energy efficiency standards.
  • If you're remodeling or renovating your home and it makes sense to upgrade the AC system to match the changes.

Again, it is advisable to consult with an HVAC expert who can assess the condition of your AC system and provide solutions that are tailored to your specific needs. In this manner, Ewing & Ewing Air Conditioning can help you determine if replacement is necessary and guide you in selecting the right AC unit for your home.

Reviews from Our Clients


“Great company. Very honest, reliable and fair pricing. They came out to do a service on my A/C unit. Robert who was amazing explained everything to me and showed me where there was a coil leak. They’re coming back out to do the repair for me. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone I know. Hard to find good honest companies these days but speaking from experience Ewing & Ewing is one you can trust. 10/10"


"I'm so happy I found Ewing & Ewing today! My prior contractor was closed Sundays, and another one that was recommended was also closed Sundays, so my third attempt was Ewing & Ewing who came today (Sunday) a couple of hours after I called. A very nice gentleman named Chris fixed the problem in no time. They have an excellent annual service contract at a very reasonable price, so I couldn't pass it up. I look forward to working with them again. They have gained my trust and confidence today."
